RI Class of 74/76 Birthday Bash @ Jackson Miller Singapore Swimming Club on 10Oct2019

prawn salad

prawn salad

our RI friends organised a great birthday bash dinner & golf (for the golfers) at jackson miller at singapore swimming club on 10.10.2019. ^^


we had 5 course dinner

prawn salad was quite good,

sashimi and sushi was pedestrian,

lobster bisque was quite good, competent.

choice of main course include chilean seabass(patagonian tooth fish) & wagyu

the chilean seabass was below par..should be smooth, flaky, slight oily fish better than cod..this one either not the freshest cut or slight overcooked.

heard the wagyu was good…

bomb alaska basically vanilla ice cream with too much cream..not sure the flaming did much to the taste..

nice cake though with RI school crest,

SL's cake

and SL made an excellent cake!

a very enjoyable dinner and evening with RI pals of yesteryears…

curry chicken with jiamtauroti

my 8th cooking demo at teban gardens community service centre

it takes time to cook curry chicken on the spot so basically i provided the recipe and cooked the dish at home and brought over to teban gardens and heated up there, while i walked through the steps in the recipe i provided.

i used to make my own curry paste, but i not picky so i find the ready curry paste like heng’s, mak, and happy family all ok for me.

for me, curry paste settled, a key for me is the stock. in use very tasty intense chicken stock from chicken bones boiled with carrots etc and reduced over 4hrs. one can use ready chicken stock too.

in this case for cooking demo and sharing purpose, i recommend to remove the breast meat and boil the boney chicken parts like ribs etc over 1/2hr, then add back the breast meat…

for me i think texture is as key as the taste, so chicken must be just right and not overcooked, like anything else actually, lol! 🙂

the residents loved the curry chicken and potatoes and take with some “chiam tao roti” baguette!
